Scheduled COSMOS maintenance 05/10/2013. Finished

COSMOS Systems exceptional maintenance - all systems going offline due to electrical works on site.

ak-- 12am 6 October, cosmos2 was brought up over night and queues restarted now. It took a while, because of one blade intermittent failure.

ak-- 6.20pm, an update -- NFS storage and cosmos/universe/cosmic - are back online. cosmos2 will take a bit longer to finish...

All Cosmos systems - compute and login nodes, file storage and web services - will go offline this Saturday, 5 October 2013.  This is because of the electrical shutdown on site to take place from 3pm till 5pm.

We will take this shutdown as an opportunity to perform certain system maintenance tasks, so all Cosmos systems will go offline at 11am on Saturday and hopefully will be back online by 7pm Saturday.

Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Web server recent crash

Web server has crashed last week with a loss of content.

Sorry to say so, but due to a combination of unfortunate events, we have lost the content of the new Cosmos web service (including backups), so it will take time to restore that. Sorry for the inconvenience caused.
